Health Fruits Make For A Healthy Diet!

Aug 17, 2007
Fruit has been around since the beginning of the world, and man has been eating it for as long as man has been on this earth. (Except for recently, all we seem to eat is french fries and pizza.) Fruit is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and different types of enzymes that help to keep you healthy. Most fruits are easily digested and they have a cleansing effect on your blood and your digestive tract. Here is the nutritional value for a few common types of fruit:

Apple - Apples tend to help put a stop to diarrhea, and they also are a good source of calcium and vitamin A. The skin of an apple has far more nutritional value than the flesh, and it gradually decreases towards the center of the fruit.

Banana - Ripe bananas are also used to relieve diarrhea, whereas the unripe fruit can stop constipation. Bananas are very high in calories, which can give you a boost of energy when you are down. Bananas also contain many vitamins and minerals including calcium, phosphorous, iron, and vitamin C.

Cherry - This fruit is used to cleanse the system, and can also help prevent dental problems. Cherries have also been used to help insomniacs get a good night sleep.

Coconut - The nutritional value of this fruit is it tends to cool the body. Coconuts are also a rich source of potassium, and coconut oil is often found in shampoos and conditioners, because it has a restorative effect on hair.

Orange - Oranges are good for relieving thirst, and also contain many different vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, B, C and calcium. Oranges are actually one of the highest foods in Vitamin C. Oranges and orange juice have long been thought of to help give your immune system a boost, and to help fight sickness.

Watermelon - The nutritional value of a watermelon is that it is a good source of vitamin A and vitamin C. A watermelon is also very useful in cleansing your system including cleaning your kidneys, and purifying your blood. Watermelon can also help to fight different types of infections because it increases urine flow.

Fruits are a delicious way to increase the nutrition of your diet. Plus, they are easy to integrate into your diet - just add fruit to your breakfast cereal, your salad, your dessert, your sandwich, or anywhere you like! The more fresh fruit you add to your diet, the more health, nutritious, energy-filled your diet will be!
